Assessing the need for evidence-based home visiting (EBHV): Experiences of EBHV grantees
Paulsell, Diane, July, 2010
(Brief 1). Princeton, NJ: Mathematica Policy Research.

The Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program, authorized by Section 2951 of the Affordable Care Act of 2010 (P.L. 111-148), will provide $1.5 billion to states over five years to provide comprehensive, evidence-based home visiting services to improve a range of outcomes for families and children residing in at-risk communities (due to high rates of poverty, violence, poor health outcomes, and other factors). To receive the funds, each state must conduct a statewide needs assessment that (1) identifies at-risk communities, (2) assesses the state's capacity to provide substance abuse treatment and counseling, and (3) documents the quality and capacity of existing early childhood home visiting programs as well as gaps in these services. A number of the grantees participating in the Children's Bureau's Supporting Evidence-Based Home Visiting (EBHV) to Prevent Child Maltreatment grantee cluster prepared needs assessments to plan for implementing or expanding grant-related evidence-based home visiting services. This brief provides information about how grantees planned the assessments and collected the data, as well as facilitators and barriers to carrying out the assessments. It also describes lessons identified by grantees. (author abstract)

The beneficiaries of childcare expansion
Ghysels, Joris, March, 2012
(CSB Working Paper No. 12/02). Antwerp, Belgium: Centrum voor Sociaal Beleid Herman Deleeck (Herman Deleeck Centre for Social Policy).

This paper investigates how expansion of the supply of childcare is likely to change the use of childcare services and especially the extent to which the social imbalance in its use is corrected. The empirical case at hand is Flanders, the largest region of Belgium, which has a comparatively speaking large offer of formal childcare slots, but continues to struggle with excess demand and uneven access. The latter is crucial for policy makers. Is rationing to be blamed for the underrepresentation of certain social groups in formal childcare or is an explanation to be found in other circumstances such as poor employment prospects or more traditional family values? In this paper we simulate a simple expansion of the number of formal childcare slots and investigate its consequences, in terms of how this expansion affects the use of both formal and informal childcare, keeping all other circumstances constant. We show that a large increase in use can be expected for those groups that are currently underrepresented in the formal childcare sector, even without a change in the mix of subsidised and non-subsidised service providers and without other contextual changes (e.g. maintaining the small monetary gain from paid employment for low-skilled mothers when making use of formal childcare at its current prices). Yet, we also show that while the social gap is narrowed, the childcare sector cannot be expected to close the gap entirely by itself. Furthermore our estimates suggest that the expansion of formal childcare is likely to result in part-time combinations of formal and informal care, rather than in complete crowding-out of informal care.

Caring for the Dallas community's littlest learners: A case study of child care supply, affordability, and quality
Texans Care For Children,
Austin, TX: Texans Care for Children.

This portfolio provides a snapshot of child care in the Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) Metroplex community. It includes information on the 12 counties in the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA): Collin, Dallas, Delta, Denton, Ellis, Hunt, Johnson, Kaufman, Parker, Rockwall, Tarrant, and Wise. Until 2008, the Texas Association of Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies (TACCRRA) produced county-level data on child care and demographics for every county in Texas. This year Texans Care for Children collaborated with the TACCRRA network, and particularly ChildCareGroup of Dallas, to update and expand upon child care data in the DFW area. This report also includes detailed county-by-county data on child population, demographics, and issues of early care and education in the Appendix. Throughout the portfolio are spotlights on Dallas County that provide a more in-depth examination of child care needs. Much of this data was obtained through a survey Texans Care for Children issued to child care providers in Dallas County. Due to the small sample size and voluntary nature of the survey, the data collected is not necessarily representative of all child care providers in Dallas. However, the information gathered does provide insight into some of the most pressing challenges and opportunities facing children, families, and child care providers in the broader Dallas community. As reflected in the report, many working families in the community rely on child care providers outside the home, but the availability of quality, affordable care that meets individual family needs is limited.

Challenges in needs assessment: The Head Start Needs Assessment National Analysis
Hung, Hsin-Ling (Sonya), June, 2013
Evaluation and Program Planning, 38(), 13-18

Needs assessment (NA) is conducted to identify discrepancies that guide the development and improvement of services. In this article we focus on methodological issues in a secondary analysis of a multi-site, national needs assessment. Understanding challenges in such a context is important for needs assessors. The Head Start needs assessment project is a good illustration of the problems that can be encountered. Lessons learned will be useful for advancing NA practice in the future. (author abstract)
